Richmond youngster Sydney Stack is in hot water once again after being charged by police for breaching Western Australia’s COVID-19 self-isolation protocols.
According to multiple reports, Stack was arrested, charged and refused bail after he was allegedly caught in the WA party district of Northbridge in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Stack was recently granted approval to return to WA on compassionate grounds and had arrived in Perth from South Australia. He was required to complete a 14-day self-isolation period upon his arrival, in line with WA protocols for South Australian arrivals.
To make matters worse, police claim that Stack was staying at a residence in Belmont, despite nominating an address in Northam for his self-isolation period.
Stack and fellow banned teammate Callum Coleman-Jones had recently made an early start to Richmond’s pre-season in order to get back in the club’s good books.
After his initial ban, a contrite Stack had pledged to rebuild the trust with his club, but now that appears to be in tatters.
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to apologise for the mistake I made,” he wrote after his initial COVID-19 breach.
“I’m very sorry, understand the seriousness of it and can do nothing now but own the consequences.
“I only hope going forward I can rebuild trust in me again.”
